The Navarrese hyper-corrupt Spanish Nationalist authorities privatized a couple of months ago the kitchen services at the public hospitals of the Old Kingdom. Since then the anger among patients and acquaintances, as well as among the general public, has been growing, with endless protests in the streets as well as in the media and Internet, as the extremely low quality of food service clearly endangers the health of patients and rations are so small or inedible that relatives are being forced to take their own food to hospital. Even one patient declared himself in hunger strike in protest.
However the entrenched Barcina government has only insisted that the decision to privatize the service will not be changed and has taken no other measure to tackle the problem.
The worst is actually happening in the end: one patient is now being treated for infection of Listeria, a bacterium that was detected in the infamous hospital food in recent tests.
